A significant milestone of our safe water projects is that very first Annual Monitoring.  Not only does it signal one full year from commencement of safe water provision to project communities but also affords an opportunity to measure the impact of our intervention.

In April last year, we at Co2balance, together with our in-country partners, began the process of rehabilitating broken boreholes in communities in Togo, starting from Keve District.

It’s been a journey of engaging, assessing, fixing, flushing, chlorinating, testing, measuring, checking, and most importantly consumption.

Typically, in Annual Monitoring, the field team visit a random sample of communities and households to complete various surveys which allow us to assess the projects impact on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the amount of water used by project beneficiaries.

And as our field team have just completed our first Annual Monitoring of the project, in joy, I’d like to share some photos from our hardworking field team with you. It’s exciting!
